Usborne and Kane Miller Books who we are
Educational Development Corporation began its Independent Representatives Division in March, 1989. This Division, operating as Usborne Books & More, markets the entire Usborne and Kane Miller line through a combination of direct sales, home shows, book fairs, fund raisers, grants and school and library sales.
We spent considerable time analyzing the vision for this company and what its purpose is. Yes, we sell the very best children's books in the world, but we feel we have a higher purpose. We feel we are part of the overall education and literacy movement in the nation, and we feel our products can make a difference in the lives of children.
ABOUT EDCin 1973, Peter Usborne decided that educational, nonfiction books would need to change in order to compete with TV and comics. He borrowed some ideas from these two media and hired educational consultants to oversee the writing to make sure that the books would satisfy the child's interest but also arouse it.
Usborne Books are fascinating, lavishly illustrated books written with humor, surprise and drama. They incorporate activities and puzzles to challenge a child's observation and intelligence. Their superb printing quality and exceptionally well-produced graphics, high ratio of pictures to text, short magazine-like format and unique detail set Usborne Books apart from anything yet produced. There is a wide range of subjects covering hobbies, history, science, nature, foreign language, parent's guides and more. Usborne Books truly appeal to all ages, infants to adults, with prices to suit everyone. The books are printed on acid free paper, so the pages will last forever if taken care of properly.
Literacy for a Lifetime offers a 50% matching grant in books for every dollar contributed.
"The future of our world depends on the education of our children. UBAM delivers educational excellence one book at a time. We provide economic opportunity while fostering strong family values. We touch the lives of children for a lifetime."
Usborne Books help make success more achievable!
